The station was opened in 1951 as part of the extension to Lijordet. After the closing of Grini in 1995, it is the first of three stations on the Røa Line within Bærum municipality, and passengers travelling here from Oslo need to pay a higher fare. The station serves northwestern Bærum, including Eiksmarka and Fossum; to the north of the station is the Eiksmarka school.
The station was the site of a murder in 2002 when a 22 year old Ethiopian woman was stabbed to death by her husband.
